Recipe: Zoodle Basil Tomato Salad

End-of-the summer zucchini still overflowing in your garden?  IMG_5588I love the versatility of zucchini, and the fun new spiralizers on the market make fun shapes that are even more accepted by picky eaters!  I recently tried this creation out for a party, and plan to share it with the Kids Nutrition Clubs I’m leading this fall at two locations!  Fresh & tasty!

Let me know if you try it!

Zoodle Basil Tomato Salad

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 zucchini, trimmed and spiralized into zoodles
  • 2 pints grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • Dressing:  1/3 cup balsamic vinegar + 1/4 cup olive oil + 1/4 teaspoon black pepper + 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder + 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces mozzarella, cubed (optional)

Mix veggies together, or layer in glass bowl.  Dress just before serving.  Top with cheese cubes, if desired.
